The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned Abdullahi Babalele, son-in-law of Atiku Abubakar, before the federal high court in Lagos, on Wednesday for allegedly laundering $140,000 in the build up to the 2019 general election.

Uyiekpen Osagie-Giwa, Atiku’s lawyer, was also arraigned for allegedly laundering $2 million in connection with the elections.

The duo were arrested in Lagos on Thursday after they honoured an EFCC invitation.

The EFCC alleges that Osagie made a payment of $2 million without going through any financial institution – an amount that exceeded what is authorised by law.
